1. There is never a day so dreary, There is never a night so long, But the soul that is trusting Jesus Will somewhere find a song.
Refrain: Wonderful, wonderful Jesus, In the heart He implanteth a song: A song of deliv’rance, of courage, of strength, In the heart He implanteth a song.
2. There is never a cross so heavy, There is never a weight of woe, But that Jesus will help to carry Because He loveth so.
3. There is never a guilty sinner, There is never a wand’ring one, But that God can in mercy pardon Through Jesus Christ, His Son.

Alternate third stanza: 3. There is never a care or burden, There is never a grief or loss, But that Jesus in love will lighten When carried to the cross.
